I can face my fears
I have had several experiences today that have kept me thinking about the many areas I need growth and improvement in. I lost patience more than once today, wrestled with some anger and resentment, recognized my need for better boundaries, plenty of areas I could find ways to work on affirming the changes I want to make. I started writing when my oldest daughter came down stairs. We had just finished a rather dramatic bedtime again and even though we figured things out eventually it was one of the moments today where I lost my patience.
She asked me what I was doing and I told her I was about to write my affirmation for today. Instead of writing what I had originally planned I would instead like to share with you our conversation and let it stand as is for today's affirmation. I believe this came as a result of what happened last week and affirms the power of showing up .
"What are you going to write about?"
"I think I'm going to write about boundaries."
"You could write about facing your fears."
"Yeah, that's a good idea. What kind of fears are you facing right now?"
"Like facing your fears when you don't know something and you find out about it."
"So facing your fears by finding out stuff about things you don't know about?"
"What do you do to face your fears when you don't know something."
"Asking somebody for help."
"So you can face your fears by asking for help from others when you don't know what to do?"
